It seems like it was a URI - a day after the fever incident she
started sneezing, so she stayed at the clinic during my vacation. But
heck, what strain am I dealing with here?
Three of my other cats caught it almost two weeks later (the 'sick'
cat had not yet been re-introduced), with no previous symptoms, not
even conjunctivitis, just a sudden high fever (all three topped at
106). All were cooled down by bathing, two needed Ketofen injections
to lower the temperature. No other symptoms appeared, but they were
given a week of Clavamox to be on the safe side. Two others 'only' got
sneezing (maybe I just missed the fever?), and while one responded
almost immediately to Clavamox and was fine within a week, the other
one is posing another problem. He is not responding to the Clavamox. I
had him on Clavamox for 5 days with no result, so I switched to
Baytril, day 3 at this point, still to no avail. He is just getting
more and more stuffed up, so I've added a humidifier for temporary
relief. Temperature steady at 103.5, luckily he is eating and drinking
well, so no dehydration.
I guess I just wait it out? >> Stay informed about: Sudden high fever in cat
